The Jones Act: What is it and why should I care?

The Merchant Marine Act of 1920 was introduced by US Senator Wesley Jones from Washington, and signed by President Woodrow Wilson. Commonly known as the Jones Act, the law states that all cargo sailing from one US port to another, either directly or via a foreign port, must sail on a vessel that is US crewed, owned and built.

By ensuring US-based handling of domestic cargo sailing between the mainland and the three non-contiguous locations, namely Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico, the Jones Act:

  • Allows for a well paid, educated, and all-American merchant mariner force;
  • Supports US shipyards as well as the national maritime industry as a whole;
  • Provides long-term service and rate stability, while encouraging investment in domestic port infrastructure;
  • Contributes to maintaining homeland security.
